A New Jersey Transit crash injured several people, two seriously when a train collided with a tractor-trailer carrying paint in Little Falls, authorities said.
Transit officials say the truck driver tried to back up as the gate came down about 8:15 a.m., but the train could not stop.
The accident remains under investigation.
A school crossing guard was hit by debris in the accident. The guard and a New Jersey Transit worker were among the two serious injuries.
Authorities are still assessing the potential impact to the evening commute.
The accident closed the Montclair-Boonton line.
